A senior army commander said Wednesday that Israel does not want to involve Syria in its current conflict with Lebanon.
Brig.-Gen. Alon Friedman told Army Radio that Israel's current policy is not to attack Syria so long as Damascus does not get directly involved in the fighting.
"Right now we don't have any intention, any thoughts of acting against Syria, unless Syria carries out some sort of act," Friedman said. "As long as Syria remains outside of these activities, we will keep the same policy that we have implemented until now."
